We simply cannot get enough of Cobie Smulders! The stunning Canadian-born Actress known best for her work in The Avengers as Agent Maria Hill and Robin Scherbatsky on popular Sitcom, How I Met Your Mother, is back in Toronto to promote upcoming Comedy Delivery Man.
Based on the TIFF ’11 French-Canadian Film Starbuck by Director Ken Scott, the Film which is garnering lots of positive buzz, stars Vince Vaughn. You could say that in a meta way, Smulders’ visit home truly is like a Canadian Story returning to its roots on multiple levels. The Comedy centers around a Man who one day realizes he has fathered 533 Children via Sperm Donation.
Smulders‘ Press Day today kicked-off at KISS 92.5’s THE ROZ & MOCHA SHOW, followed by a visit to CITY‘s Breakfast Television, where she had a Chat with Jennifer Valentyne. “This Movie has a lot of heart and it’s really sweet. You find yourself really sobbing. It’s very, very sweet”, she said earlier. On her Friendship with Vaughn she reveals, “We’re pretty much Best Friends at this point!”.
She was incredibly nice to make time for Fans earlier today before heading into CITY‘s Studios. We have fond memories of Smulders’ last visit to Toronto, where she was an absolute Class Act! More on that here.
Things certainly aren’t slowing down for new Mother Smulders, who stars next in eagerly-awaited The Lego Movie and also reprises her role as Maria Hill in Captain America: The Winter Soldier and The Avengers: Age of Ultron.

After the cataclysmic events in New York with The Avengers, Marvel’s Captain America: The Winter Soldier finds Steve Rogers, aka Captain America, living quietly in Washington, D.C. and trying to adjust to the modern world.

Toronto was lucky enough to host the Canadian Premiere for Marvel’s The Avengers and after doing a busy day of Press, Stars Mark Ruffalo (The Hulk/Bruce Banner) and Cobie Smulders (Agent Maria Hill) graced a Fan and Media-lined Red Carpet at Scotiabank Theatre.
Despite running a bit behind, Oscar-nominated Ruffalo navigated the Carpet with great prowess, balancing his time between Outlets and Fans, spending a gracious amount of time signing Autographs and posing for Photos. Dressed a perfectly-tailored Suit and looking in fine form, the Actor is embracing his increasingly-distinguished looks, sporting a few new gray hairs since I last met him in 2008 at TIFF.
For the first-time ever on-screen, Marvel’s The Avengers brings together Superheroes The Hulk (Mark Ruffalo), Iron Man (Robert Downey Jr.), The Black Widow (Scarlett Johansson), Hawkeye (Jeremy Renner), Captain America (Chris Evans) and Thor (Chris Hemsworth), joining them as one force in a fight to save Earth from the ruthless Loki (Tom Hiddleston). Although at this time I am unable to post a Review of the Film, I can say that Joss Whedon masterfully interweaves several complex Superheroes’ stories here in an explosive Spectacle.
With the likes of Lou Ferrigno, Eric Bana and Edward Norton having once filled the role of iconic (and destructive) Superhero The Hulk, I asked Ruffalo what unique traits he will be bringing to the table in Marvel’s The Avengers. “I’m not sure”, he tells me humbly. “The one advantage I have is that I am the first Actor to play both Bruce Banner and The Hulk, so I hope that brings him alive in ways which CGI alone couldn’t.”.
